Allie Burke is the bestselling author of Paper Souls, a coming of age novel about a young woman living with schizophrenia. She has a passion for advocacy, having written for her own column in Psychology Today magazine, leading communication efforts at the LA division of Diversability as Senior Editor, and managing the Stigma Fighters non-profit Board of Directors as Vice President of Operations.
She is known in the literary world as The Queen of the Surreal, and for good reason. Allie’s love affair with prose has led her to develop the only literary society and magazine of its kind, which is now known as Organic Coffee, Haphazardly.
Her life is a beautiful disaster, flowered with the harrowing existence of inherited eccentricity, a murderous family history, a faithful literature addiction, and the intricate darkness of true love. These are the enchanting experiences that inspire Allie’s fairytales.
Selfless State of Mind is her personal blog.
